Stock scream room

Post by technovelist » Thu Oct 02, 2014 10:55 am

What, no screaming about the horrible decline in stocks?
Note: I don't have any stocks, so this is just a public service announcement.  :P

At least TSLA and TWTR are up today, happy with that :-)

I bet heavily on the ^VIX today and yesterday. Why, what happened?  ;)

3.5% off the all-time highs feels like panic given stocks unrelenting rise. Doom has come! But probably not.

I've been accumulating IJH (mid-cap index) and IJR (small-cap index) on every dip.

Smallcaps actually had a nice recovery today.

Always wondered how dip-buyers define a "dip" and where the money comes from to buy "every dip."

iwealth - For me a "dip" means a new recent low.  My money comes from the surplus of my paychecks.  And I do the same for IAU and TLT.  I buy the lagging asset when its "On Sale".

Ouch, I feel sorry for people heavy in stocks today.

Me too... as long as they haven't heard and dismissed the notion of having some gold as a counterweight.  :P

Interestingly, the gold miners got hammered today even though gold was up.
